Subject: Self-test-specific code defeats the whole idea of self-test

Sayantan,

Apparently you have added specific get_key_self_test() and crypt_all_self_test() functions in four OpenCL formats and they even have self-test specific kernels. If we go that path, we can just as well drop the whole idea of self-tests, no? It is totally OK in an experimental branch but hacks like that does not belong in bleeding at all IMHO, other than for very short time if you have a specific plan (but that should ideally evolve in a topic branch). In my book this is four release blockers.
